Two Boy Scouts from Troop 5 in Bronxville were presented with the Ad Altare Dei (to the altar of God) award at a special mass at St. Patrick’s Cathedral on Sunday, April 18, 2010.  The Ad Altare Dei is the oldest religious emblem program available to Boy Scouts and is designed to help Catholic Scouts of the Roman Rite develop a fully Christian way of life in their faith community.  Steven Ircha and Savino Brusco, both 7th Graders at The Bronxville School, completed the rigorous program over an eight month period and had to be approved for the emblem by an official Boy Scout board of review.
